West Hollywood Public Library

This $64 million project, which opened in October of 2011, developed in partnership between the city of West Hollywood and the Los Angeles County library system.  Santa Monica’s Johnson/Favaro architecture and urban design firm drew the plans for the brand new book depot.  The firm’s budding relationship with West Hollywood will also result in a redesign of the Sunset Strip and West Hollywood Park.

Compared to the colorful Pacific Design Center whales across the street, the white, square building doesn’t quite stand out.  But, Shepard Fairey, Kenny Scharf, and Retna have decorated its parking garage with colorful murals.
